The Enneagram is a powerful tool for personal, spiritual and professional development as we learn to “un-stick” ourselves from fixed and limiting patterns of our personality. Bringing awareness to our patterns reorders the energy and allows us to suspend established ways of seeing the world.
You will learn:
• Attention patterns and the worldviews of the nine types
• Gifts and inner resources for each type
• Energetic habits for each type
• Spiritual practices for loosening automatic patterns
Sandra Smith, M.Div., has been teaching the Enneagram throughout the southeast since 2002. Sandra creates and leads workshops and staff trainings using the Enneagram as a map for deepening self understanding.

With 17 years in a corporate setting and 14 years directing a nonprofit, Sandra uses the Enneagram map as a tool for deepening self-awareness and creating supportive workplace cultures. She completed the Enneagram certification process with David Daniels, M.D. and Helen Palmer and is an Affiliate of the Association of Enneagram Teachers in the Narrative Tradition and mentors candidates for certification in the Enneagram Professional Training Program. Sandra received her M.Div. from Candler School of Theology at Emory University where she graduated with honors.

CENTERING PRAYER AND ITS HISTORY WITH FATHER WILLIAM MENINGER
Saturday, June 1, 2013 from 10 a.m.–3:30 p.m.
Cost: $55 (includes lunch)
Father Meninger, one of the founders of the Centering Prayer movement, has written widely and recorded numerous audiotapes on contemplative prayer. Fr. Meninger grew up in the Boston area. He entered the Trappist monastery at Spencer, Massachusetts in 1963 where, in 1974, he originated the workshops on Centering Prayer which he now teaches worldwide
along with workshops on Forgiveness, the Enneagram, Sacred Scripture, and Prayer. Father William leaves the monastery only four times a year in order not to lose his own monastic orientation while sharing it with others.
